The solid bronze Washing of Feet wall cross is a perfect gift for all who serve, a reminder of the scriptural basis for the calling. “I am among you as one who serves,” Jesus said.
This cross makes a wonderful gift for all those who serve, including priests, ministers, counselors, teachers, nurses, doctors, hospice workers, and so many others. It is also a perfect gift for all those idealistic young women and men who feel challenged to make a difference in the world.
A Solid Bronze Cross of Service
Measuring 2.8 inches high and 2.4 inches wide, this cross can be hung easily on any wall in the office or in the home. This solid bronze cross, conceived and forged by a master bronzesmith in Germany, honors the generosity and selfless dedication of all who serve. It is a popular gift for those serving in clinics, schools, hospitals, hospices, churches and schools.
A Cross for All Who Wash the Feet of the World
The story of Jesus washing the feet of his twelve apostles (John 13:1-17) has found special poignancy and relevance in the example of Pope Francis, the “Servant of the Servants of God.” On March 28, 2013, Holy Thursday, in a Roman youth prison, Pope Francis washed the feet of the young, including those of two young women, one of whom was a Muslim from Serbia. What a beautiful example of washing the feet of the world.
The reverse side reads in German: Dienet einander mit der Gnadengabe wie Sie ein jeder empfangen hat als treue Sachwalter der mannigfachen Gnade Gottes.
Translation: Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.
